The Wisconsin Spring Special sale was held March 30 at the Great Northern Sales Arena in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. A large crowd gathered while some of the states best cows and heifers paraded the ring and auctioneer Tom Morris let the gavel fly.

The sale averaged $3,920 on 33 cows, 45 heifers, and 5 first choice female lots. The sale topper of the day was Budjon-Dannys Gib Autumn-ET at $14,000, a recently fresh 2-year-old that was purchased by Andy Wolf of Oconto Falls, WI. The second high seller was a first choice female from Valley-Drive DM Zamantha-TW at $9,700, which was purchased by the Friends of Judy Syndicate in Columbia City, Ind. Coming in as third high seller was MS Regancrest D Stylish-ET*TV at $9,200. She was purchased by Joseph and Hidde Osinga of Hico, Texas.
